Sharing and Grouping



Sharing and Grouping Division

Let us distribute strawberries equally to all the four children one by one.

Sharing and Grouping Math

After distributing equally among four children, four strawberries were left. They can be further distributed among four children.

Sharing and Grouping Division Math

Now, there are no more strawberries left in the box. Each child got 2 strawberries. So, division is an operation of repeated subtracted of the same number.

8 – 4 = 4

4 – 4 = 0

Here, we have subtracted 4 repeatedly 2 times until we reached 0.

Hence, 8 strawberries ÷ 4 children = 2 strawberries for each child.

We can also say that 8 strawberries have been divided into 4 equal groups of 2.

Sharing Division Fact

So, 8 ÷ 4 = 2. This is called a division fact.
